Here's a "Try At Your Own Risk" idea. Install a larger value
capacitor in a GE charger. It of course will result in outside of
intended range operation, but with some careful monitoring and a bit of
trial and error you just might pull it off.You just might find a Lister
that has replaced the GE charger with a late 20th Century upgrade. A
donation to science and the greater good and all that. :)|

I have a bunch of 8V Trojans that I am planning to use for my EV. I
recalled that some of you have souped up your ETs with those batteries
instead of the 6V ones, to make the pack a 48V pack.
The ones I have are old, and were bought at scrap value mainly, to use
as mockups for the battery packs. However, they will hold a charge and
can be used for initial power up testing before buying a brand new pack.
However, i can't seem to be able to find a 8V charger that can equalize
the charge in each battery individually, and would rather do that than
charge three at a time at 24V or six at 48V.
Any recommendations for large lead-acid 8V chargers, and sources where
i can purchase one?
